Farm Machinery

Not sure what purpose for this equipment, but I guess it did something. We hiked around the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Peaks of Otter and stopped by the “Johnson Farm”. I took a few pictures here, which will provide me with some material for future daily posts.

Here is what it said about the farm:

“Around 1766 Thomas Wood began the first known homestead on this property. The farm passed through several hands until John T. Johnson bought it in 1852. Johnson family descendants worked the farm continuously for nearly 90 years, during which time it became part of the flourishing Peaks of Otter community.”
